Remembering "Ding Dong" Grandma
I was mortified when Spark referred to her as "DingDong" Grandma - mercy!
He very casually explained something to me and called my mom Grandma and her Mom, DingDong Grandma.
Mom and Dad lived in DingDong's suite so he had to find a way to differentiate between the 2 grandmas, I guess. Life's confusing enough for a child. It was, of course, her mantle's chiming clock he used as reference. Brilliant.
Not sure if DingDong Grandma ever heard herself referred to as such. Kind of doubt it. Maybe once - - -
Anyway, she would have been celebrating her birthday today.
Uh, Happy Birthday, Ding Dong Grandma!
